I installed the mediawiki packages from the official repository, and I ran into several questions. Mediawiki installs into /usr/share/webapps/mediawiki, but the default root of apache is /srv/http. Is it safe to simply move the files from the former directory to /srv/http/mediawiki so I can actually access them from the browser?
This one is proving to be a nuisance for me. Basically, I've installed MediaWiki on 12.04 server ed. Now I've tried changing the document root, ServerName variable in apache and more, but I can't get my server's domain name to resolve to the directory where mediawiki is installed (grr!). So going to let's say foo.bar.com resolves to /var/www.
